Watching a food show last night on the telly, I had an inspiration for a quick pasta recipe.
Obviously, you know how to make pasta
So this is a classic Mediterranean, Italian-style pesto, which is based on three simple ingredients:
- 1 slab of Urbangrains feta
- 2 cups of fresh basil leaves
- 1 cup of Urbangrains extra virgin olive oil
- 2-3 garlic
- Salt and pepper to taste
Well, here is the magic – simply mix all ingredients together using a blender.
Upon having your pasta ready, add the pesto on top, or throw it in the pasta and mix it.
Here is how my pest looks like:
Now, if you do not use the entire recipe, you can keep it in the fridge for up to one week. Remember, this sauce contains feta cheese, which goes bad after a while. Having the extra olive oil is not only a greasing benefit but acts as a preservation agent.
If you think that the next time you can use is will be … next month, store it in a bottle, and put it to the freezer.
This way, ou will have a pesto sauce, everytime you need it – why buy it from the supermarket, when you can make it yourself?
